Dayton has a $30,000 Cheesesteak .. and in 2017 it was a pink Food Adventure. Let us explain….
It was standing room only in the Huber Heights Submarine House Bar and Grill when Clayton Naylor chomped the competition last month. He downed a 16 inch Super Duper Cheesesteak in the official time of one minute and 55 seconds, leaving all other store champions still chewing their food. Clayton pocketed a grand, and got a 2017 Championship belt and trophy. He hugged his daughter and posed for pictures afterwards. It was his 2nd championship, having won the event 2 years earlier.
Clayton said his nutrionist and trainer wasn’t happy about him eating the cheesesteak, but he he told them it is only 3 times a year …. so lighten up Francis.
You would think that was enough excitement for one day at the Submarine House. You would be wrong. Earlier they announced the proceeds from their 2017 Super Duper Cheesesteak challenges would benefit the Pink Ribbon Girls, a Dayton charity helping local women with breast cancer.
Food Adventures is happy to have been a part of this challenge for the past few years. In the past, we have watched Submarine House donate checks of $15,000+ and $17,000+ to local charities like Dayton Children’s Hospital, This year, the Submarine House owners, Brody Danner and Jason Danner, were about to blow those numbers away.
This year, the Danner family, Submarine House and the Cheesesteak challenge raised $30,000 for The Pink Ribbon Girls.
The crowd went bezerk as they held the huge “check” up for the people to see, and presented it to Heather Salazar – Executive Director from the Pink Ribbon Girls.
The event has turned into a day long celebration. The Huber Heights locale hosted a beer tent, a bouncy house and live bands afterwards. It was a day and an evening to celebrate a big donation to a great cause.
Let this be a reminder to you that in 2018 to support the Super Duper Cheesesteak Challenge when it rolls around again in January through March of next year.
These charity dollars support and directly affect real families in the Dayton area and are making a big difference in families’ lives. Support local businesses that give back generously to local charities.
The Submarine House is one example of those places. We look forward to next year’s challenges and congratulate all involved with this successful charity event.
